Remember just a few years ago when we started to see a flurry of articles, presentations, and even books about the topic of “Workforce 2020” that offered predictions about what work and workplaces would be like at the then far-off-into-the-future year of 2020?
On September 23, @shrmnextchat chatted with Brynne Herbert (@brynnespeaks) of MoveGuides about Ensuring the Successful Global Relocation of Talent.

In 2005, Fast Company wrote a scathing review of the HR profession in an article titled, “Why We Hate HR.”

It can be difficult for a 25-year-old to envision life after age 65, let alone to start saving for it—and many young people aren’t even sure how or where to start. That’s why it’s important for employers to take an active role in educating employees at every stage of life about the benefits of retirement savings plans.
The HR profession is full of acronyms. Grab any three or four letters from the alphabet and throw them together and there’s probably a corresponding law for it. But there are two acronyms in particular that create a lot of anxiety for HR professionals: FMLA and ADA.
Taking your HR career to the next level is not always easy—even if you are a super performer at your current job. Moving to the next level often requires many different competencies and skill sets that will allow you to grow into a strategic executive who is action-oriented and who embraces technology. It also requires an understanding of your strengths and of how others view you—and this is where your personal brand steps into the picture.
An employee handbook is essential for the well-being of every organization. It communicates the employer’s mission, vision and culture, as well as information on rules, policies and benefits. It also contains information on state and federal employment laws.
When well-constructed, employee handbooks help employers build trusting relationships with workers, avoid conflicts and ensure fair treatment in the workplace. When poorly written, they can create a nightmare of situations for HR, ranging from hostile work environments to lawsuits.
